The voice of European regions
AER is a network for and of regional and local politicians, addressing political concerns of a pan-European nature and fostering leadership excellence on all levels of governance. Our aim is to provide services for better decision-making and provide visibility, putting regions on the map.
We embrace globalisation, beyond Europe, and acknowledge the need of diversity, inclusion and a multi-cultural approach in search of solutions. Our perspective of regional policy making is grounded in the territories, cultures, histories and lives of the citizens.
